Friday fictioneers: Coded message


Ben returned from the counter. He saw the luminous colour of the Post-it but he could not read it until he put his glasses on.

Once he did he became very confused. The words written were “Marx, Highgate.” Why would anybody put that on his book? Was it a code? Should he call the police?

Ben did what most would do in that situation. He put the note on the cardboard Starbucks cup as he drank the coffee. He forgot about the note when it was in the bin.

Until he heard the news of the bomb at Highgate Cemetery.
